How many videos does it take to explain how to do addition? Well, as Chad explains at the start of the show, if you’re talking about Common Core, at least six. That’s why the Academic Standards Review Commission who has spent a year reviewing Common Core standards for the state’s public schools is recommending scraping the way math is taught. Of course, that also means millions in tax dollars spent to train teachers on the overly complex teaching method will have been wasted.
Next, Chad speaks to LadyLibery1885, A.P. Dillon. Chad asks A.P. right out of the gate if she is running for office. She says she just doesn’t have the time, but she has considered it. Chad tells her a lot of people probably just gave a collective sigh of relief. They have a great discussion on education – especially why the NCAE won’t release its membership numbers and the latest woes of the Wake County School System.
In the second hour, News14’s Tim Boyum joins Chad. He and Chad discuss the latest two General Assembly members who have said they will not be running for re-election. They also discuss WBTV’s Nick Ochsner’s story on Rep. David Lewis. You gotta’ listen because as Chad says, “it’s always fun when Tim’s on.”
Finally, do you shop online? Chad tells a great story about his Mother and her Christmas shopping habits. It’ll make you laugh and touch your heart at the same time.
